A former Air Canada A320-211 that was leased from ILFC, N957PG (msn 302), is scheduled to stop over at HNL from TUS. Today's flight originated from TLC (Lic. Adolfo Lopez Mateis International Airport, Toluca, Mexico), then stopped at TUS. N957PG is bound for HIR (Honaira International Airport, Honaira, Solomon Islands) for Solomon Airlines (IE/SOL) via NAN and MEL. It will be first painted at MEL.

C-FMEQ was originally delivered to Canadian Airlines International (CP/CDN) in March 1992. It joined the Air Canada fleet when CDN and ACA merged in 2000. In November 2001, C-FMEQ was transferred to Air Canada's Tango subsidiary. After Tango was dissolved in 2004, it was re-integrated into the ACA fleet. In October 2007, Pegasus Aviation acquired C-FMEQ, and registered it as N957PG. In December 2009, it was placed in storage at GYR. It was ferried to SJO (Juan Santamaria International Airport, San Juan, Costa Rica) in December 2010 for heavy maintenance.

N957PG sits on a wet Monday morning at the hardstand fronting Bradley Aviation. Mahalo to team member Lono68 for the photo. Mahalo to MRC Aviation for the information regarding its destination.

***09.21.11 Update***
N957PG has been registered as H4-BUS, and painted in full Solomon Airlines colors.
